Its most likely something to do with the laptops network settings. When a WM5 device connects, it does so over RNDIS and the laptop acts effectively as a DHCP server for the network between the laptop and the device - giving itself an IP address of 169.254.2.1 and the WM5 device an IP address of 169.254.2.2
Have a look next time you connect your device and you should see a new network connection start up (mine is Net Connection 6) - make sure you have TCPIP etc enabled on that connection.
I select RNDIS(from WM6 ActiveSync advanced, the IP excatly like 169.254.2.x) but can't connect thru internet via my GPRS/EDGE.
It only work able to access internet via GPRS/EDGE when select USB Serial (from WM6 ActiveSync advanced), the IP is 192.168.0.x)
If you notice the different, RNDIS won't put in the default gateway while USB Serial yes. Oh yah, even I manually add in the gateway inside Windows XP's network from RNDIS connection, it failed to access internet too..
FYI, my laptop no internet access, only via iPAQ 512 WM6's EDGE connection.
By the guide, RNDIS said "Enable internet capability, select RNDIS. Disable internet capability, select USB Serial".
I was thinking the RNDIS designed should be for ActiveSync + Internet Access via the Telco GPRS/EDGE/3G...but..it isn't work.
